    I only bought my 12 inch powerbook revD 15 months ago and now the battery of my notebook does not last more than a few minutes. I would like to buy a new one, but the price of the original is expensive and I wish I could buy a cheaper one. A local reseller told me third-party batteries were available, but I do not know where to buy them. Any tips?

    (Oh, by the way, I live in Taiwan).

    Some of these batteries are cheaper than Apple's and supposedly hold a longer charge.

    I bought the $149 one from this site and am very pleased! Much more battery life than ever. Only got 2-2.5 hours out of the original, now meter shows 4-5 hours all the time. I ordered online on a Saturday and the battery arrived on Tuesday! MacSales gets my vote!

    Good luck!
